Details

The Bird Rock bandits, comprised of educated, relatively affluent males of La Jolla, have maintained a longstanding dedication to violent criminal behavior, culminating in the 2007 murder of professional surfer, Emery Kauanui. No members of the group had ever been arrested prior to the murder, and the San Diego Superior Court ruled that this group should not be formally classified as a gang, despite seemingly meeting the four criteria for gang membership enumerated by California's Street Terrorism Enforcement and Prevention Act (S.T.E.P.) Join sociology professor Dr. Erik Fritsvold for a look at the role race, class, and social location can play in criminology and justice.

For ages 55 and up.

Registration is required for this free event. Visit www.sandiego.edu/bridges for more information.
